What Is Market Research

Prior to any commercial endeavours, whether starting, running, or selling a business, restructuring, or diversifying your products and services, market research can help you to develop and improve your business, financial, and marketing plans by providing relevant and timely insights about how best to propel the business and tap the most promising opportunities. When combined with data analytics, which helps you better understand the various parts of your business, change the business strategy, improve the business model or processes, or understand and manage the risk associated with the business, you can future proof the business thereby ensuring its sustainability.


Market research can answer:

  • Is there a need for your product or service;

  • Who are your most important potential customers;

  • How loyal are your customers today and over time;

  • How do customers perceive your product or service;

  • Most valued features of your product or service;

  • Customer satisfaction of your product or service;

  • Are there funding grants my business can access;

  • New opportunities for business expansion.


It also investigates the impacts of:

  • The location of the main market;

  • The location of any underserviced markets;

  • The size of the market (Increasing or decreasing);

  • Characteristics of the market;

  • Various market strategies and tactics;

What Is Social Research

Social researchers employ a range of methods in order to analyse a vast breadth of social phenomena. From census survey data derived from millions of individuals, to the in-depth analysis of a single agents' social experiences. From monitoring what is happening on contemporary streets, to the investigation of ancient historical documents. Social research helps you understand how the public feels and may react to major issues or minor social problems, as well as providing you with current views and insights on different government policies and programs. These may be major policies impacting the general public, or they may be bespoke programs that target certain groups or localities.
